Hannah Scott (2017 Cohort)

Hannah Scott

About me: I graduated from my undergraduate degree in psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London and went on to complete an MSc in Forensic Mental Health Research at King’s College London. Before starting my PhD, I was the lab coordinator for the Hungry Mind Lab, where my focus was developing new assessment tools for imagination.

The difference my research makes: My PhD project focuses on social support after bereavement by suicide and aims to better understand how social networks are impacted by suicide, and what kinds of informal social support are best at helping people cope with bereavement. Alongside academic output, I will develop a free, publicly accessible resource to help groups of friends and family best support each other through a loss to suicide.

Supervisors: Bryn Lloyd-Evans and Nicola Morant.
